Keith Duffy looking forward to Ciaran's return

Ciaran McCarthy is coming back to the cobbles next week and his portrayer, Keith Duffy, is looking forward to it. The basic story has Peter and Leanne bumping into Ciaran as he quits his job at a restaurant where they were dining. Peter offers Ciaran a job cooking in his and Leanne's new bar and Ciaran decides he'll take that offer. There's plenty for Ciaran to look forward to, including Michelle, a hot barmaid in the Rovers and he wastes no time piling on the Irish charm because, you know, Michelle hasn't had a boyfriend in almost a month.

There's a long interview in the Mirror with Keith, too, where he talks a lot about losing his long time friend and Boyzone band member, Stephen Gately. Stephen's sudden death from a heart attack last fall really hit Keith and the other band members hard. Keith had know his friend since they were 17 and is still shocked and grieving. He does find that the return to Corrie is helping because he is busy in the days and at nights, he's learning his lines and it all keeps his mind occupied most of the time. His wife and kids are still in Dublin. The other subject he talks about is his campaigns to raise money for autistic children after finding out his younger child, daughter Maia has autism. It was difficult for Keith and his wife, Lisa, at first but they have found a way through their own problems and Keith's campaigns have raised quite a lot of money and awareness and helped to open a dozen or more specialized schools to help kids with autism develop.

I'm looking foward to Ciaran's return. He had lovely tattoos ;))) And in spite of having Michelle in his romantic sights, let's not forget his ex-love Sunita is back in the picture and there will soon be another of his exes skulking around, Tracy Barlow!

I never watched Corrie when this actor played this womanizer, but perhaps he'll do better and Ena's Hairnet will be pleasantly surprised. I'm just looking forward to a new "uber-womanizer" on the street who can stay a while and chase/charm maybe ALL the women on the Cobbles -- Sunita, flapper Michelle, Julie, Eileen, Mary -- ah, why not bring 'em all in for an Irish charmer to kiss the girls and make 'em cry... hee, hee, hee....
